McDonnell F-4E 77-0308 was originally built in 1977 for the Turkish Air Force as c/n 5030. In the late 1990s Turkey decided to upgrade the F-4E so it would be able to perform the tasks that would be necessary until all the F-4s could be replaced by the F-35 Lightning II by 2020 or later. Extensive modifications were carried out on these aircraft by Israeli Aircraft Industries with the major upgrades being internal, new wiring, computers, radar and new weapons carrying capabilities. The new upgraded aircraft were named F-4E / 2020 “Terminators” and they first entered service on January 27, 2000 with the 111 “Panthers” and 171 Filo. 111 Filo is located at Eskişehir in northwest Turkey.
